A new Italian blog analyses and compares European media laws

Oreste Pollicino, an Italian lawyer and professor at Bocconi University, Milan, has founded Medialaws, a blog dedicated to media regulation in Europe, LSDI reported. The main focus of the project is to provide an international approach to the comparison of media law around Europe. The blog, which has today already published about 50 news articles, comments and analysis, is counting on contributions from professors, journalists, lawyers, and students. As the Bocconi online newspaper pointed out, beside the infinite exchange of information that the digital era makes possible, there is the exponential growth of legal matters that arise from new media which make it of fundamental necessity to take a comprehensive approach to the subject. Too often in Italy – the article underlines – comments and analysis are too political or come from scientific journals too specific for a wide public. “Medialaws has two main characteristics,” an introductory article says, “technicality of analysis and comments (and their political neutrality ) and attention to the comparative perspective, enhanced by the participation of foreign correspondents”.
